Amnesty International has shifted its centralized International Secretariat (IS) into a more strong, coherent and visible presence in strategic locations in the global South.
In the Americas, we are developing a stronger presence, with a regional office for the Americas based in Mexico City, a Sub-regional office in Lima, Peru, and an office in Washington D.C., we have de-concentrated key functions to enhance our research and campaign capacity. Being closer to the ground is enabling us to operate with greater speed and relevance and to be more agile and responsible to the demands of our human rights agenda.
Amnesty International’s Americas program is looking for an experienced Regional Content Manager to contribute to the development of a strong communication strategy for our human rights work in the region.
About the role:
This new and exciting role has plenty of scope to let your creativity and exceptional multimedia communication skills soar. It’s all about delivering compelling messages and stories to the right audiences through the right multimedia channels. You will develop, shape and produce multimedia content that will help achieve challenging campaign and communication goals. You will develop innovative ideas and draft and implement creative communication strategies – making sure all communications embody Amnesty International’s brand.
As part of a new Americas team based in Mexico City you will work in collaboration with colleagues regionally and globally, including with research and campaign teams, sections and national offices, and other civil society organizations.
You are highly skilled and experienced in developing powerful cross-platform communications for a diverse range of global audiences. You are particularly accomplished at analysing and segmenting audiences, and using this knowledge to successfully engage new people. You have the passion and drive to deliver dynamic content that will bring about human rights change.
Technically speaking, you’re at home using multimedia and publishing systems and software for digital interactions, particularly audio-visual tools. But just as important are your skills at building relationships, advocating and persuading across a range of cultures and contexts.
Amnesty International is a global movement of more than 7 million people who campaign for a world where human rights are enjoyed by all. We reach almost every country in the world and have:
- more than 2 million members and supporters who drive forward our fight for rights
- more than 5 million activists who strengthen our calls for justice
Our aim is simple: an end to human rights abuses. Independent, international and influential, we campaign for justice, fairness, freedom and truth wherever they're denied. And whether we're applying pressure through powerful research or direct lobbying, mass demonstrations or online campaigning, we're all inspired by hope for a better world. One where human rights are respected and protected by everyone, everywhere. We can only do this because of the generous donations from millions of people around the world.
